Dukkah is delicious for dipping bread into and for sprinkling over other dishes. For a simply superb treat, put some good olive oil in a small dipping bowl, some pomegranate molasses in another, and some dukkah in a third, then dip some good Turkish bread into all three.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g hazelnuts
60g coriander seeds
50g cumin seeds
100g sesame
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast for 10 minutes, or until the skins have started to crack, keeping careful watch that they don’t burn.
  2. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly, then tip the hazelnuts into a sieve and shake the skins loose, or tip them into a clean cloth and rub the skins off.
  3. Roughly chop the hazelnuts in a food processor, then transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Place a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat, without any oil. Add the coriander seeds and toast for 3–5 minutes, or until fragrant, tossing regularly so they don’t burn. Remove from the pan and roughly grind, using a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder. Add to the ground hazelnuts.
  5. Toast the cumin seeds in the same frying pan for about 2 minutes, until fragrant, tossing so they don’t burn. Roughly grind using the mortar and pestle or spice grinder, then add to the hazelnut mixture.
  6. Lastly, toast the sesame seeds in the frying pan for 2–3 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant, ensuring they don’t burn. Add them to the hazelnut mixture, along with the salt and pepper.
  7. Fold all the ingredients together. Transfer to a sealed jar and keep in therefrigerator or in a cool, dark place.
